Lauren Boebert brutally reprimanded in home state newspaper: ’embarrassing’

Rep. Lauren Boebert, Republican of Colorado, received a harsh reprimand from The Denver Post Friday, who accused him of “playing strategic games” following his recent decision to run for re-election in another constituency in 2024.

On Wednesday, Boebert, one of the most staunchly pro-Trump members of the House Republican Party, announced that she would run for re-election to the House of Representatives in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, opposing in the 3rd, where she has held her position ever since. 2021.

“This is the right decision for me personally, and it’s the right decision for those who support our conservative movement,” the congresswoman said in a Facebook announcement video. “Colorado’s 4th District craves an unapologetic defender of liberty with a proven track record of defending conservative principles.”

Despite her own explanation for the decision, the move was widely seen as an attempt by Boebert to avoid dangerous re-election chances in the 3rd District where she faces a notable primary challenge from Republican Jeff Hurd, and to an even more tense electoral challenge from Republican Jeff Hurd. Democrat Adam Frisch. Colorado’s 4th District is currently represented by Rep. Ken Buck, a Republican, who announced last month that he would not seek re-election next year.

Frisch had previously challenged Boebert in the 2022 midterms, nearly scoring a surprise victory in the race, which had not been seen by observers as potentially competitive. The former Aspen city councilwoman ended up losing the race to Boebert by just under 600 votes and is currently running a new campaign for the 3rd District seat in 2024. Given her narrow re-election, her recent wave of controversy and renewed national interest. In Frisch, Boebert had a slim chance of victory next year, further imperiling the slim Republican majority in the House.

The Denver Post, one of Colorado’s largest newspapers, published an editorial Friday by opinion page editor Megan Schrader chastising Boebert for appearing to “run away” from the 3rd District to the 4th, where chances of victory of Democrats are “negligible.” The article, titled “Opinion: Do Boebert’s Shameless Seat Buys Really Matter?” also lambasted the congresswoman for accomplishing little for her home constituency and for “embarrassing” her constituents with public scandals.

“Faced with such daunting prospects, Boebert did what any unapologetic person would do: abandon his constituents to run for office in another community where the incumbent president has retired and where competition is not as stiff.” Schrader wrote. “This move has all the makings of a behind-the-scenes deal to pave the way for Hurd, a more moderate Republican, to secure the nomination and defeat Frisch in the general election.”

News week contacted Boebert’s office via email for comment.
